Ian McKenna
CEO and Founder
Financial Technology Research Centre

Ian founded Financial Technology Research Centre in 1995 nearly two decades before “FinTech” became part of the industry lexicon. A boutique consultancy, the firm focuses on how personal finance organisations can communicate more effectively with their customers and help them take better financial decisions. As part of this work the firm work with many of the UK’s leading long-term savings institutions, financial advisers, and technology providers to identify emerging technologies that can transform customer relationships. More recently the firm has added its own InsureTech and RegTech ventures to help advisers ensure they help consumers find the life insurance and workplace pensions solutions that best meet the needs. In addition to developing a UK view, Ian travels extensively to identify similar trends around the world and the lessons that can be learned from other countries.
